    I love the small 'smiley faced' engines from the south.

  1. https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=video&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwjog8qTgqLnAhUoTxUIHZlRC88QtwIIKDAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailymotion.com%2Fvideo%2Fx2hwqmz&usg=AOvVaw2gORFMSFvDhevAlTs2sjNY The dirty fork...... I’ll park it here. Griff
  2. I best get aLima one then ..... a little bit annoying but easily corrected. Griff
  3. Harsh but often the case.. Of course there are notable exceptions to the extent that this has been true and I’m sure even Guy Williams compromised on occasion..... Probably when he settled for one slice of toast rather than two for example Griff
  4. There’s been a train sat in terminal regularly at around 8:00 in the morning. I’m not sure when it’s timetabled to leave but it’s just getting light so a photo opportunity is possible. Griff
  5. Surely they should be GN Griff
  6. Linseed oil being a very traditional medium for paints of course. Griff
  7. Southern region stock has been reasonably well covered but ER/GE, LMR and ScR stock has largely ignored. Which is a shame IMHO Griff
  8. I understand your point....... Paint technology needs to improve (both in terms of environmental impact and performance) but acrylics, as they stand, are far from environmentally friendly. Griff
  9. I think I've seen a picture of a 8f on a flask..... It would have been one of the earlier vehicles though and it would be difficult to tell weather the flask was actually loaded. Griff
  10. Might be time for a return to traditional paint formulas. I was initially impressed with the performance of acrylics but have returned to using Precision paints for much of my painting. I find mixing, spraying and performance much better than acrylics (Railmatch acrylics in particular). The main advantage acrylics had, in my mind at least, was cleaning up which was handy because you’re cleaning up pretty much all the time. I used to find cleaning airbrushes of enamel paint a bind but an industrial quality of cellulose thinners solves that problem. Rob
  11. There was a great deal of redundancy of stock history. There were lots of seasonal traffics that the railways were obliged to carry despite it being for a short period of the year. Sidings full of tourist coaches in winter only to be exchanged for coal wagons in summer etc.
  12. A mk2b and a mk2c are the same length. Both possible from a mk2d but with a lot of work. I’ve had some success sorting out the body shape a ‘moulding seam scraper’. The mk2z and mk2a were the shorties. Griff
